Took forever to receive our food. Wasn't crowded, either. Go elsewhere. Plenty of better spots to dine.

Had a quick visit in this area on my way to catch a catamaran for the day. Please do yourself a favor and catch a taxi driver and negotiate a 1 to 2 hour tour of the island.

An easy walk from the cruise port, the Careenage as expected is on the waterfront and worth taking in while doing a self-guided tour of Bridgetown but nothing special.

Even merely passing by this location brings pleasure. A beautiful place to see and take pictures. Shows the pride and beauty of Barbados.

Basically the Careenage is a marina in the centre of Bridgetown which is easy to stroll around. Some nice boats were moored and some lovely reggae music was being played. It is very close to some other important historical sights such as the Parliament Buildings...More

Marina in centre of town fine selection of yachts and boats to view. Crossed by the Chamberlain Bridge which is riased sometimes to allow vessels to enter and exit the top end of the marina.
